Turn your used furniture into cash

You may be moving out or just decluttering your home. You could've inherited some antiques that don't fit with your style. You can sell all this stuff online and easily make some money.

Firstly, you should make a list of the furniture and decoration items that you won't be using anymore. Make sure that everything is in good shape and take pictures of each item. You should search for some reference prices and write a brief description of each product. Once all these tasks are done, you can offer your stuff in many online marketplaces. Here are the most popular ones:

Bonanza

The biggest advantage of Bonanza is that it's integrated with Google, so your products will reach your potential customers' attention faster. To start here, you'll be asked to set an online storefront. Then, you should select an advertising option for your items. When you make a sale, you must pay Bonanza a commission rate according to the advertising program.  

Apartment Therapy Bazaar

This is a community-driven marketplace for vintage designer furnishings and accessories. You need to create a storefront and upload your furniture photos and description. Listing your items is free, and the system will manage all the transaction process. Your stuff will get more visibility because users often share them on select social media platforms.

Letgo

This platform is completely free. You should take good pictures of your furniture, as Letgo organizes the categories in a photo gallery format. In this marketplace, you've got the option to chat with potential buyers.

OfferUp

Unlike previous platforms, you won't publish your furniture’s price. You'll hear the potential buyers’ offers and then you can decide if these amounts work for you. They offer an in-app chat feature to ease your communication with other users. 

Chairish

This is the ideal platform to sell used vintage furniture, design-furniture, special items as well as art. You'll get access to the Chairish Pink Book, which helps you determine the value of your items. As this is a high-ranked market, they charge a high fee: Chairish takes either a 20% commission on sales up to $2,500 or a 3-12% commission for bigger-ticket items.
